The cheapest and easiest way to add wireless CarPlay to any vehicle


CarPlay with Fire tablet and adapter

The easiest and cheapest way to add Apple’s CarPlay to any vehicle is with a cheap Amazon Fire tablet and a USB CarPlay dongle.

You don’t need to buy an expensive new car stereo, nor spend the weekend ripping out your dash and fiddling with wiring.

But if you’re anybody else — like someone who needs a great iPad — it’s wonderful news. You can save $100 or more.
